A left-arm spinner and self-described ‘nudger and nurdler’ with the bat, White will have added responsibility serving as the club’s second spinner in the presence of Samit Patel and absence of Graeme Swann.

He has five LV= County Championship matches to his name and once scored 65 batting at number nine against Glamorgan in August 2007 but his main aim is to demonstrate the prowess of his spin.

White represented England in the 2006 ICC Under 19s World Cup and signed a two year deal at Trent Bridge which has since been extended to keep him at the club until the end of the 2012 season.
